2D Texture differences

The most commonly used textures are 2-dimensional. There exist 3 kinds of 2D textures:

  1. Texture2D
    Power of two sized (POTS) E.g: 1024²
    These are supported on all OpenGL 1.2 drivers.

    • MipMaps are allowed.
    • All filter modes are allowed.
    • Texture Coordinates are addressed parametrically: [0.0f ... 1.0f]x[0.0f ... 1.0f]
    • All wrap modes are allowed.
    • Borders are supported. (Exception: S3TC Texture Compression does not allow borders)
  2. Texture2D
    Non power of two sized (NPOTS) E.g: 640*480.
    GL.SupportsExtension( "ARB_texture_non_power_of_two" ) must evaluate to true.

    • MipMaps are allowed.
    • All filter modes are allowed.
    • Texture Coordinates are addressed parametrically: [0.0f ... 1.0f]x[0.0f ... 1.0f]
    • All wrap modes are allowed.
    • Borders are supported. (Exception: S3TC Texture Compression does not allow borders)
  3. TextureRectangle
    Arbitrary size. E.g: 640*480.
    GL.SupportsExtension( "ARB_texture_rectangle" ) must evaluate to true.

    • MipMaps are not allowed.
    • Only Nearest and Linear filter modes are allowed. (default is Linear)
    • Texture Coordinates are addressed non-parametrically: [0..width]x[0..height]
    • Only Clamp and ClampToEdge wrap modes are allowed. (default is ClampToEdge)
    • Borders are not supported.

Note that 1 and 2 both use the same tokens. The only difference between them is the size.

3d modeling company

Hi guys,

I'm looking for outsource 3d architectural rendering service.
Could you recommend me some?
